I ordered this a few weeks back from Diana Madaras’s summer sale. I trust I’ll spend lots of winter looking at it longingly.

I work in a building that’s falling apart. Well, actually the building is just fine, but the “name plates” (I use that term loosely, as it’s really a little bulletin board thing where they pin a laminated card with our name) are a disaster. This last week two separate plates on my floor have fallen off. Mine is still on, and on tight, but as crooked as can be.

I’m sort of hoping it falls so someone can put it up again, but level this time.

I don’t get over to the library often enough because of a beautiful little tool called “document delivery” here (which included books). But sometimes I need something right away and I’ll walk over and pick it up. It always reminds me of just how little I know of all there is to know in the world.

home improvement.

Summer is construction time around here. While photos of chainlink fences and construction equipment might not seem that attractive, I thought that this scaffolding around the Basilica of the Sacred Heart made for a nice shot.

quiet, i know.

It’s been a busy weekend around here, but I haven’t documented it with pictures. B leaves tomorrow for some time with his dad and extended family in South Carolina and we’ve been stocking up on time together. Some of the things we’ve done – without my camera – have been:

A Mario Kart party:

A walk around St. Joseph lake on Notre Dame’s campus (we were hoping to rent a paddle boat, but they were closed):

And a Silverhawks game at The Cove on a beautiful spring day:

It’s my first day of a week long seminar in Notre Dame’s film, television, and theater department. This is definitely the way to kick off summer!

I wonder if he’s the type to complain about students surfing the web on their laptops instead of listening to him during lecture.

Not to be confused with winter.
